Waltham Land Trust Celebrates
Fifteen Years of Incorporation at 15th Annual Meeting
In 1999, members of neighborhood associations, community activists, environmentalists, conservationists, and "just plain folks" came to together to found the Waltham Land Trust.
Hard to believe that was fifteen years ago!
Since then, the WLT has accomplished a great deal creating a legacy of land conservation in Waltham.
At our 15th Annual Meeting on October 23rd, members of the Board reviewed our highlights in saving land, building trails, making maps, educating the public, and raising funds. Download the slideshow presentation for more info.
We also discussed our plans for the future, much of which focuses on the Mass Central Rail Trail. Inge Uhlir Environmentalist of the Year, Laurel Carpenter, shared slides about the MCRT from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation. Download the MCRT slideshow presentation to learn more.
Finally, current paying members of the WLT voted in three new Board Directors (Natalie Berland, Martha Creedon, and Brian McCormick) and three returning Directors (Betsy Lewenberg, Joyce Nett, and Diana Young). Toscini's ice cream, cookies, and other goodies were enjoyed afterwards while WLT supporters mingled with one another. See pictures of the evening.
We're looking forward to the next fifteen years!
The Waltham Land Trust’s mission is to create a legacy of land conservation in Waltham by promoting, protecting, restoring, and acquiring open space.
We envision growth in public appreciation of natural resources, preservation and restoration of native habitat, and increased biodiversity to foster a healthier environment
